Why does my car battery go dead?

Is your car sounding slow to crank when you turn on the key to start it? Do your headlights seem dim, like they provide less light than they used to? Is there a dash warning light that comes on at times? Do you hear a screeching or squealing noise when starting or while driving your car? Any one of these conditions may mean you are due for an alternator replacement.

What causes my car engine to not start?

You can’t always assume it’s a bad battery when you have to jump start your car. Let us do a charging and starting diagnosis to determine what’s causing your problem. If an alternator replacement is needed, we can install a quality Napa alternator. If the problem is caused by your battery we can install a new battery. Remember batteries need replacement more frequently than alternators replacements.

Every time you bring your car or truck into Palmer’s Auto for maintenance services we always inspect it completely. We identify worn belts, weak batteries, worn hoses that may need replacement.
